First thoughts: burn, you scumbag.

Second thoughts: how convenient.

Am I alone in thinking that this isn't true?

No! I thought the very same. I am not one for conspiracy theories but this one is certainly fishy

ShoutyQueen Sat 10-Aug-19 20:53:31

That was my first thought, too.

He has proven, well established connections with high ranking politicians, royalty.

I'm not buying it.

Are you saying that he’s not dead?

It just feels too....convenient.

I'm very sad but not at all surprised by this outcome. He's the epitome of privilege. That high a fall was always gonna end up with the person taking no responsibility and the easy route out.

I'm furious and sad for all the women who aren't going to get their day in court.
I'm furious that this undoubtedly privileged and disgusting network will continue unchallenged.

I want to see the body before I'll believe it

I have a question... is there any evidence that any of the girls were under the age of 16? I understand the ones pressing charges are 17+. If this was in England, it would not be classed as paedophilia, or would it?

In 2005, the Palm Beach, Florida, police began investigating Epstein after a parent complained that he molested her 14-year-old daughter. Epstein eventually pleaded guilty and was convicted in a Florida state court in 2008 of soliciting a prostitute and of procuring an under-18 girl for prostitution. He served 13 months in custody with work release, as part of a plea deal, where federal officials had identified 36 girls as young as 14 years old who had been molested. (wiki)

@NotVeryMatureForAnOldLady Thanks for that. I am overseas so don't have access to as much information as the UK.

Jennifer Araoz - alleged rape at 15
Maria Farmer's sister - alleged molestation at 15

Ghislaine Maxwell who was girlfriend to Epstein who had already served 13 months for soliciting a minor for prostitution is also named in the 2019 action (sexual assault). (*post edited)
Maxwell also tried to keep documents sealed that were part of a suit by Virginia Giuffre.

OK, thanks for the info. The news reports I am seeing are just focusing on Virginia Roberts.

I wonder what will happen now to Ghislaine? Do we even know where she is?

Sold her home and laying low. Paid off another accuser 2017 and had hoped that would be the end of it. Now being referred to as Epstein's 'Madam'/procurer/fellow assaulter - if she was allegedly teaching 15 year olds how to do blow jobs and allegedly helping molest kids on massage tables then she deserves everything she gets angry and I hope that means jail time.
